If two dogs are any indication, Iowa State University veterinary researchers may have found a cure Macula Dog - Natural Dog EP (File) a previously incurable disease that causes dogs to go blind suddenly. In the past six weeks, two dogs have been successfully treated for sudden acquired retinal degeneration syndrome SARDS by a research team led by ISU veterinary ophthalmologist Dr.
Sinisa Grozdanic in the College of Veterinary Medicine. The experimental treatment is the first to reverse blindness and restore sight to dogs diagnosed with SARDS. The treatment restored sight to the two dogs that were treated on April 12 and April The dogs were treated with intravenous immunoglobulin IVIga human blood product that contains antibodies from the plasma of thousands of blood donors.
It is used to treat immune deficiencies, inflammatory diseases and autoimmune diseases. The dogs have a sudden loss of vision despite no structural changes to the eyes Fruehlingsstimmen (Walzer) - Orchester Der Wiener Staatsoper Conducted By Hans Swarowsky / Johann St damage to the retinas in the early stages of the disease.
Their eyes appear completely normal, but their retinas show no electrical activity. Grozdanic and his colleagues wanted a better understanding of the molecular mechanisms that cause SARDS. They worked with the University of Iowa's Department of Macula Dog - Natural Dog EP (File) and Vision Sciences to conduct genetic testing of SARDS tissue, cross referencing the results with the U of I's datebase of genetic information from different human ocular diseases.
That was the key factor," Grozdanic said. Immune-mediated retinopathy in humans was not treatable until about 10 years ago when IVIg was found to show results in some patients. Dogs with severe cardiac or kidney disease cannot tolerate IVIg. And it The Know Nothings - God Shmod, I Want My Monkeyman work in a dog whose retina degeneration is advanced.
The sooner it's treated, the better chance it will work. An optical coherence tomography scan is needed to confirm the condition of a dog's retina.
Iowa State University's Veterinary Medicine Hospital is the only veterinary institution using this advanced diagnostic technology, which is more commonly found in large ophthalmology centers for humans.
It could be anywhere from a Macula Dog - Natural Dog EP (File) weeks to a few years," Grozdanic said. Grozdanic recommends owners visit the nearest veterinary ophthalmologist as soon as a dog exhibits any loss in vision. Materials provided by Iowa State University.
